Trains Searched In Suspect Manhunt

NORWALK, Conn. (AP) _ Authorities in Connecticut say they searched trains in Norwalk and Darien for one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects but didn’t find anything.

Norwalk officials say Boston police asked them to search an Amtrak train that left South Station in Boston at about 5 a.m. Friday.

Police say the Acela Express train was the only Amtrak train to leave Boston on Friday morning before Amtrak suspended service between Boston and Providence at the request of Massachusetts officials.

Police from Norwalk, Stamford and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority boarded the southbound train in East Norwalk with at least one bomb-sniffing dog shortly before 8:30 a.m. and didn’t find anything.

An MTA spokesman says police also searched a Metro-North train in Darien and didn’t find anything. The southbound train originated in Danbury.
